New Designer for 2014 Masterpiece Series Transformers
Posted by News Fetcher on December 30 '13 at 05:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
In the latest edition of Japanese hobby magazine, an article talking about the future of the Transformers Masterpiece series reveals that the 2014 Masterpiece series releases will have a new designer - Hironori Kobayashi will be taking over the reins from Shogo Hasui, who brought us the Masterpiece series releases from MP11 Starscream version 2 through to the recently released MP19 Smokescreen.

You need not worry though, because Hironori Kobayashi is no stranger to the Transformers Masterpiece series - he was the designer on the first ten Masterpieces that Takara and later Takara-Tomy released, from MP1 Masterpiece Convoy / 20th Anniversary Optimus Prime to MP10 Convoy Version 2. He also did the initial work on MP3 Starscream, which was revised by Shoji Kawamori. Mr Kobayashi's other Transformers design credits include the Alternity series.

Please note that this does not affect the design of the Masterpiece Star Saber, which is being undertaken by Hishashi Yuki as previously reported.

IDW Windblade Comic Confirmed as 4 Issue Mini-Series; Possibly an Ongoing?
Posted by News Fetcher on December 28 '13 at 03:00 PM
By Mechafire from TFW2005:
Thanks to writer Maighread Scott's postings in TFW2005's very own Windblade fan club, it has been confirmed that the Windblade fiction will consist of not just a single comic, but will be a 4 issue mini-series. What's interesting is that Scott also notes the possibility of it evolving into an ongoing should the project be successful, which would presumably run alongside MTMTE, RID, and whatever else may pop up. She also answers some other questions and goes into even further detail about various topics.

Be warned, some of her comments may be considered slight spoilers. If you don't mind, you can read her quotes and discuss your feelings about this revelation after the jump!

YOTH Optimus Prime Sighted IN STORES!
Posted by News Fetcher on December 28 '13 at 10:30 AM
By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:
Looks like YOTH Optimus Prime is busting out the gate a bit early, galloping to a Toys R Us near you. 2005 Boards member Sinestro snapped this pic showing the Asian Market (inspired) Masterpiece Optimus Prime repaint on the shelves and ready for sale at Toys R Us in the UK. User Stony2511, also from the UK, reported it at a different store too, tho with no pics. No word yet of them popping up in the States or elsewhere yet. Happy hunting! If you find him or Platinum Starscream, make sure to let everyone know in our Transformers Sightings forum!

Rescue Bots Rescan Optimus Prime and Heatwave Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on December 28 '13 at 06:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Back in October, we heard via listings on our sponsors Big Bad Toy Store of an upcoming assortment of Transformers Rescue Bots, called Rescue Bots Rescan. Today via the website of Smyth's Toys, we have a look at two of the toys in this series, Optimus Prime and Heatwave. While the toys retain the Playskool "first Transformer" simplicity that the Rescue Bots series is known for, the toy designs show both Rescue Bots have adopted new alternate modes - Optimus Prime is an all-terrain monster truck, and Heatwave's arms suggest he's now a boat.

Now we know that the "rescan" in Rescue Bots Rescan means that the Rescue Bots are scanning new alternate modes for themselves - but does this mean this will be reflected in the new season of the Rescue Bots cartoon, or is it merely a new way to sell toys in the Rescue Bots line without diverging into masses of non-show characters? Watch this space for more news.

They are done roughly to Masterpiece scale and can tow the trailer for MP-10 Masterpiece Convoy. Check out the images and see what you think.

By Mechafire from TFW2005:
Mairghread Scott, writer of IDW's upcoming Windblade issue (which had been previously reported yesterday), has released a few statements on her Tumblr regarding the comic. In them, she attempts to clarify how the subject matter of female Transformers in the IDW G1 continuity will be handled.

Be warned, some of her comments may be considered slight spoilers in regards to Windblade's origin. If you don't mind, you can read her comments after the jump!

(And if you Are a Windblade fan, consider joining TFW2005's Official Windblade Group, where Mairghread Scott's husband has decided to drop by to answer some questions!)

IDW 2014 Sneak Peek - Transformers: Windblade, Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction And More
Posted by News Fetcher on December 25 '13 at 10:30 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
IDW is sharing with us, what they have planned for the upcoming year; 2014. Though it's called a "Sneak Peek", they only offer samples of few titles but mentions what they have in store for us.

From Transformers we have Transformers: Windblade which will be out April next year. What exactly is Windblade. Well, TF Comic fans were teased few days back by Newsarama regarding a sequel to Dark Cybertron. Well, here it is. Mystery… Solved!

"Who is Windblade? In the aftermath of Dark Cybertron, Windblade takes the planet by storm—and Starscream’s not happy about her being there! But where did she come from—and what does her secret mean to the future of the Transformers? A powerful new chapter in the Transformers saga begins here!"

X-Files: Conspiracies will also include Transformers.

But, here's a bit of a surprise. Though it was mentioned countless times that there will be no tie-in/adaptation comic book for Transformers: Age of Extinction, the Sneak Peek lists that there will be one after all. However, at the moment we do not know whether this is an IDW story of their own or whether it ties with the movie story.

Check out the IDW 2014 Sneak Peek pdf here.

Yes ladies and gentlemen, not only will the Transformers Movie Heroes 18 oz. Tritan Water Bottle quench your thirst, but it also shows off a few bots from the upcoming movie: Optimus, Bumblebee, and Grimlock!

UPDATE: We've also uncovered two other items on Entertainment Earth: Transformers Movie Heroes 12 oz. Acrylic Travel Cups and a Transformers Movie Heroes Large Tin Tote! Not much is shown on these items, although they do provide a relatively good look at Bumblebee's new robot form!

Although we may have saw this coming months ago, it's finally official. The BotCon 2014 webpage has just been spotted online confirming the 30th Anniversary of Transformers will be celebrated in Pasadena, California from June 19 through June 22.

The BotCon Twitter feed even poked fun at themselves calling this "the worst kept [Transformers] 30th Anniversary secret." We're all just happy we can officially start asking our employers for days off now!

As of right now there is no hotel or registration info yet, but keep it here on TFW2005 where we'll update you when the news goes live!

Start planning for BotCon 2014 everyone, it's right around the corner!

Update: Just to throw a little more teasing our way, the BotCon Twitter feed also just dropped a line that "Issue #8 of Transformers Timelines has an ad for BotCon and a HUGE hint at this years set theme!" What could this year's theme be?!
